2005 Volkswagen Golf Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Volkswagen? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Volkswagen? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Golf towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Golf's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Volkswagen Golf’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Volkswagen. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
